Last week, Amazon launched its new Kindle Fire HDX line. The device is available in both 7″ and 8.9″ sizes. The 7″ tablet features a 1080p resolution, and the 8.9″ tablet sports a 2560×1600 resolution at 339 ppi. Both variants feature an incredibly powerful quad-core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, complete with four Krait 400 cores and an Adreno 330 GPU running at 450 MHz. The speedy processor is backed by 2 gigs of RAM and 16, 32, or 64 gigs of internal storage. The devices run Amazon’s proprietary “Fire OS 3.0,” which is overlaid atop a customized version of Android Jelly Bean.

Today, we’ve enabled an option to authenticate your account with Google. This applies to both new and existing accounts. When creating a new account, you’ll notice a new Google button at the top of the forums. When you set up your new XDA account with Google, you’ll still need to set a username so that we can register the new account on our servers. Then for the future, you can login with Google at your convenience.
Existing users, too, can authenticate with Google by going to the Edit Email & Password section of User CP. Your existing account will remain unchanged; you can login as usual in the future with your XDA username and password, or with Google.
An important note: In order to use t. . . READ ON »

Today we are very excited to announce a new pilot program that will go live in the next few days. Given the emergence and increasing popularity of One-Click-Tools and Toolboxes, many developers faced a problem: Where do I put my thread if the tool is compatible with multiple devices?
Until now, you had three possibilities where each one had its own flaws:
- General Android development (not many people search for Sony toolboxes in this forum → limited visibility)
- Just a single device development forum (again, limited visibility for all the other devices)
- One thread per supported device (Easily mistaken as spamming the forum and only possible in a few limited cases)
We hope to solve this issue with the introdu. . . READ ON »

Samsung recently unveiled three new and enticing devices aimed at making you simultaneously lighten your wallet a little, as well as pack your pocket, briefcase, and wrist with a little more technology. These are, of course, the Galaxy Note 3, the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition), and the Galaxy Gear.
Samsung refreshed its popular Galaxy Note lineup with the Galaxy Note 3 phablet and the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition). Both build upon their predecessors by adding more powerful specs, while retaining the critically acclaimed S Pen functionality. The Galaxy Note 3 ups the ante on its predecessor by raising the screen resolution to 1080p, upping the RAM to 3 GB, and packing in a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 8. . . READ ON »

Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve made DevDB open to all users who want to post development projects. As a reminder, DevDB is XDA’s new way of organizing development projects. We’ve been working on it for quite a while, and are pretty excited with how developers are already using it across the site.
It’s live for the most popular devices, and will be active for all future devices added to XDA. Over time we plan to add new features to DevDB and will be fixing bugs on a continual basis. If you spot a bug or have a feature request, post it in this thread.
Our friend Azrienoch put together a video that shows exactly how it works.

Not too long ago we talked a little bit about the Moto X and gave it a place here on the forums. While Motorola’s first real post-Google flagship may not have what it takes to win over the specification-frenzied techno-elite, its innovative software features have won the favor quite a few. This has lead to apps that emulate much of the functionality on other devices. However, the Moto X isn’t Motorola’s only high end phone.
Launching exclusively on Verizon in the US, the Motorola Droid Ultra (as well as the Droid Maxx) shares much of its internals with the flagship Moto X. They both carry the Motorola X8 Computing System, which is essentially a 1.7 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, alon. . . READ ON »

So the much anticipated Moto X launch has come and gone, and many power users were left feeling a bit underwhelmed. Packing a 1.7 GHz dual-core variant of the Snapdragon S4 Pro and a 720p AMOLED panel, the Moto X is certainly not in the same category as the class-leading flagships of 2013—or even 2012. Though with two ancillary processors working in tandem with the main CPU to process specialized tasks, the device’s X8 “Mobile Computing System” is certainly its standout feature.
The LG G2, on the other hand, is every bit a flagship device. The device, which as yet to hit store shelves, features a 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC. The Snapdragon 800 is comprised of the new Krait 400 pr. . . READ ON »

Earlier this month, we announced the first stage of our rollout of XDA DevDB to a handful of forums. For those unfamiliar, DevDB helps developers on XDA better organize their ROMs, kernels, and other development works, while adding useful functions like a bug reporter, feature requestor, user reviews, download section with torrent functionality, and more. It’s heavily integrated into the forums, so that if you want to use XDA as usual, you can do so.
In the second stage of our roll out, we’re adding DevDB to a handful of new forums and are letting all Recognized Developers on XDA use the system (in the future, all XDA members will be able to post new works to DevDB). Additionally, we’ve fixed b. . . READ ON »

Just exactly how thin is too thin? Well, that’s a question that Huawei is trying to answer with its Ascend P6. And if you ever felt your current handset was a bit too portly, the P6 begs for at least a passing glance.
Coming in at a mere 6.2 mm thin, the Ascend P6 features a brushed metal rear and silver metal accents along its sides. The sleek device packs a 4.7″ 720p display, backed by their in-house quad-core Huawei K3V2 processor running at 1.5 GHz. The P6 also offers 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, HSPA+ 21 connectivity, and a 2000 mAh battery.
Do the Ascend P6’s sleek design and slim figure earn it a place in your pocket? Let us know in the comments below and head over to the . . . READ ON »
